Easy Potato Coconut Curry (Vegan, Gluten Free, Whole30)

This easy and delicious Potato Coconut Curry comes together quickly for a weeknight dinner!  Its packed with fresh healthy vegetables in a tasty vibrant sauce, and is naturally vegan & gluten free!

There are so many wonderful things about this dish – first of all its a One Pot Meal!  There’s less to clean up afterwards, and I can enjoy throwing everything in one large soup pot on the stove while it cooks.

This Potato Coconut Curry is one of those delicious meals I call “Easy Weeknight Meals,” meaning that I can work a full day at the office, and still come home to prepare this without much fuss.  It takes about 40-ish minutes, which is the perfect amount of time for a batch of rice to be steaming in the rice cooker.  Both can be ready about the same time!

Its naturally vegan & gluten free!  This plant-based curry is free from animal ingredients and still is full of rich and comforting goodness.

It makes a lot of leftovers.  I’ve been really into batch cooking and meal prepping lately – and this recipe fits super well into both of those categories.  This curry makes about 8 servings… so if my husband has seconds (which he totally did both nights and RAVED about it) the curry will last about 2 or 3 nights.

Its super cost-effective and inexpensive to make.  Potatoes, canned tomatoes, coconut milk, rice…. this recipe uses a ton of pantry staples and foods I always have on hand.  No fancy ingredients needed, just delicious, simple, whole foods.

It. Tastes. AMAZING!  Got an A+ rating from the hubby and myself.  I love easy curries and this is so perfect for these cool spring nights when its still chilly enough to have a fire going in our wood stove.  It is also surprisingly light!  I had a bowl for dinner, and an hour later ended up doing a few miles on the treadmill.

Filing this recipe under ‘Favorites’ for sure!  🙂
